The Roxy refurbishment project funded by an Arts and Cultural Infrastructure Grant is well underway and the excitement about the fresh paint and shiny windows is contagious.
We are experiencing a flood of inquiries from the community about how you would like to utilise this wonderful architectural icon.
From wedding photos to private screenings and special events, we look forward to everyone having their own stories to tell about the Roxy.

The Whitton Courthouse and Historical Museum is looking for new volunteers interested in spending two to four hours a month.
You could work on the collection, cataloguing and help prepare exhibits, or if food and social gatherings are more your style, we would love more volunteers to cater for tour groups, all dates and times are organised in advance to keep it simple.
The Australian Art Deco Festival Leeton planning is ramping up, and the new Leeton Art Society president has confirmed the theme of the 2019 Penny Paniz Acquisitive Art Prize for Easter will be Art Deco in Leeton.
Don’t forget the Yanco Powerhouse Museum will be open on Sunday, September 30. The mini train rides are a major hit with the kids and it’s a great way to celebrate the start of the school holidays and support our local museums. No bookings are required with entry $5 for adults and $1 for kids aged 6-16.
